Abstract

This invention was developed for the SAT-A60/B60 digital satellite receiving box. The invention entails a one-time password entry screen, where the user can set or eliminate their password. To initiate the setting of the password, the user would first have to access the Locks & Limits menu, clicking on the edit icon once there. Inside of the Edit Locks & Limits menu, the user would select the "One-Time Password" option, in which the user would then be able to institute the one-time password system. The one-time password is automatically eliminated by the system after being used-in order for the user to re-use the one-time password option, the user must go back into the "One-Time Password" screen and create a new password.
